    1. A Christmas movie–themed mug they can anxiously sip from while watching Lifetime and waiting to see if Big City Corporate Gavin decides to stay in the tiny town of Tinsel and win the heart of Local Snowman Artist Christine — and also save her business from closing.


    Btw, you're welcome to this plot idea Lifetime!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    2. A floating-hinge panini press, because regular sandwiches are BORING, and they deserve BETTER.


    Get it from Amazon for $32.75.

    Promising review: "I typically do not purchase appliances with one use but this is so fast and handy that I use this for more than sandwiches. We are empty nesters and I eat alone during the week, leaving me somewhat uninspired to make much of an effort. With common sense, this unit is capable of other jobs...turkey burgers, roasted veggies, quesadillas; to name a few. I do wish there was a temperature control but cannot complain given the 20-dollar price tag. The surface will accommodate two sandwiches, even on oversized bread, such as rye." —Helen0225

    3. A gift subscription to Disney+ so they can have access to all the DCOM (Disney Channel Original Movies, duh!), Marvel, classic Disney Animation, and Star Wars content of their dreams.


    They can download *unlimited* shows and movies on up to 10 devices, so they'll never be on a long flight without something awesome to watch again! Um, YES I'd like to be able to watch Smart House whenever I darn well please.

    Plus there are tons of original titles premiering exclusively on Disney+ — like Star Wars's The Mandalorian (BABY! YODA!) and Marvel's The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

    Get a one-year gift subscription for $69.99.

    4. A question a day desk calendar for the trivia buff who wants to prepare for their eventual game show domination — or their local pub trivia night.


    Get it from Amazon for $13.49.

    Promising review: "Love this and have bought this for many years. Very interesting questions and you learn a lot." —Debora DeMattia

    If they're ok waiting until after Christmas, the Jeopardy desk calendar is my personal fave!

    5. A Golden Girls blanket in a PopArt style for cuddling up with all the coziness they feel when hanging with you — their bestie!

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my mom's birthday. She is a huge Golden girls fan and absolutely freaked over this. Amazing quality, huge, better than expected!" —Tori Benton

    6. Or a 10-pound weighted blanket that'll feel just like a soothing hug for an added dose of security. And unlike other weighted versions, this just looks like a regular fleece blanket, thanks to its (washable!) cover a with a silky side and a nubby side for fully customizable relaxation.


    Get it from Amazon for $84.97 (available in five colors and three weights).

    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE! I cannot say it enough, this has been the best purchase! I've always had trouble sleeping and with my new blanket those troubles have gone away. I feel such a sense of security that I know right out! It is super soft and really great quality. I've had everyone in my family try it and I will now be buying one for my husband and one for my son. Totally recommend to all for a great night of sleep!" —Aleyda Galdamez

    7. A Dash mini waffle maker in their favorite color so they can enjoy all the perks of a brunch out in the comfort of home.


    You can even make it a DIY gift set by adding in a waffle mix. I'd recommend my perosnal favorite, Birch Benders buttermilk pancake and waffle mix — just need add water and oil (aka you don't need to have eggs in the house!).

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in eight colors, plus heart-shaped and pumpkin-shaped versions).

    Promising review: "Definitely one of the best purchases I have made on Amazon so far. Just as described, it is a mini waffle-maker. Because of its size, it works quicker than a normal-sized one so even though you can only make one small waffle at a time, each waffle should be done in about a minute or two. The interior is also non-stick so it is really easy to clean, which was a huge bonus for me. On top of that, it comes with a little instruction pamphlet that tells you how to use it and and includes recipes and recipe ideas! Personally, I love it; it’s what I wanted and more." —Cristal M.

    8. Adorable *and* thermal insulated socks that'll actually cure anyone's cold feet — lit'rally and figuratively.

    Get a pack of two pairs from Amazon for $15.99 (available in 12 color packs).

    Promising review: "Without exaggeration, these socks are life changing. My feet are always cold especially at night, and these are the first socks I've ever found that I can wear to bed comfortably and not need multiple pairs. I also wear them in my winter boots for added warmth. The only thing I wish was that they were a bit less bulky — I can wear them in my winter boots because I sized up for that reason, but my regular boots are too snug with them." —Jessica

    9. A 10-pack of sheet masks packed with vitamins, minerals, and Icelandic glacier water to refresh and hydrate their skin after they've been thoroughly stressed — after all that gift shopping, you deserve these too. You can even split the pack up for easy stocking stuffers!


    You get two of each of the five kinds: peach (for moisture), papaya (for exfoliation), litchi (for brightening), mangosteen (for calming), and almond (for nutrients).

    Get the set of 10 from Amazon for $10.98 (available in two combo packs, or a 20-pack for $18.89).

    Promising review: "I bought these on a whim and I fell in love. I have really dry skin and these soften and hydrate my skin. I have turned all my girlfriends to these masks as well!" —Christine Sunny

    10. A guided journal filled with writing, drawing, and other creative prompts to inspire people of all ages to explore different scientific areas.


    It has tons of references in the front, including basic HTML code and a periodic table, plus quotes from notable women in the fields of science, technology, and math. Learning just got a whole lot more fun.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.39.

    Promising review: "Inspired by Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World by Rachel Ignotofsky, and go well together as a gift or for yourself. The first couple of pages include formulas, measurements, equations, periodic table, and more. Very well organized and easy to understand. The rest of the book is a cute notebook great for science experiments and/or journal entries. Wish I had this when I was in school." —Jahaira Duarte

    11. A classic black Baies Diptyque candle that'll make their home smell like pure money. Mmmm, luxury.


    If someone got me the jumbo version of this, they'd definitely be my favorite.

    Get it from Nordstrom for $95.

    Promising review: "This is the only candle I will buy again and again. It smells absolutely amazing, even when not burning. When I have guests over, they always comment how nice the room smells. I could not recommend this candle enough. I have not met one person who doesn't love it." —Seng

    12. A BB-8 kitchen timer, because the stakes really are save-the-galaxy high if they leave their famous casserole or brownie bars in the oven too long. The fate of the meal plan(et) hangs in the balance.


    When the alarm goes off, this lil' guy will emit a BB-8 lights and sound effects!

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    Promising review: "BB-8 is a family favorite in our house. We use this as a fun and useful way to set time limits whether it's 2 minutes of brushing teeth or 30 minutes of screen time, etc. and it has been very useful and well received. Once you turn the head it makes a sound and then a longer sound once the time is up.We have used it all the way up to 60 minutes and it's accurate. It's very cute." —Underthesamebluesky

    13. And The Star Wars Cookbook for any kitchen geek, whether they're gonna be cooking Han Solo or with the whole extended Ewok family.


    Get it from Amazon for $10.79.

    Promising review: "Star Wars fans will love this cook book filled with recipes that incorporate various SW names into the recipe name. The book features some really nice photography using action figures and the recipes, very entertaining for the fans. But the other really nice thing about this cook book is the recipes are actually very good. It's not just a novelty cook book as the recipes are well thought out and very delicious. The wookie cookies are my favorite - enjoy!!" —dansp91

    14. Acrylic statement earrings your friends will think you picked up abroad in some cool little modern art museum.


    ::Tries pronouncing "Amazon" to somehow sound French::

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99 (available in 35 colors and styles).

    Promising review: "These are just the right size and so light to wear! I was worried they'd be heavy but it feels like you're not wearing anything. The color is stunning. Lots of complements on these! Glad I didn't pay 10 times the price at Anthro for similar style." —Misee

    15. A super-soft pullover they can wear when staying in their favorite beet farm–B&B hybrid. Just remind 'em to watch out for Mose! He's had nightmares ever since... the storm.


    Get it from Amazon for $22.95+ (available in sizes S–4XL and 26 colors).

    Promising review: "I got so many compliments on this sweatshirt. It's such a great tribute to the office. Anyone that's a fan will definitely pick up on it. I've actually seen a few people out with something similar but mine's way cuter. The material is high-quality and the sweatshirt is so soft inside." —snicolo

    16. A Fenty Gloss Bomb Lip Luminizer available in three universal shades that'll look gorgeous on lit'rally EVERYONE. Rihanna never lets us down.


    Get it from Sephora for $18 (available in three shades).

    Promising review: "My new favorite lip product! This is the perfect gloss to throw in your bag and use everyday. The color is natural, the formula is extremely glossy and hydrating! It stays on for hours and leaves my lips moisturized after it wears off. At first I was skeptical by the title 'universal,' but I lend this gloss to my friends and it looks gorgeous on all of them. It is TRULY the perfect lip gloss, will definitely be repurchasing!" —LisaVAbbyM

    17. Plush-lined hedgehog mittens that might be the first pair they never actually lose, that's how cute these are.


    Get them from Amazon for $9.89 (available in six colors).

    Promising review: "These are too cute. I bought a pair and my sister loved them, so I bought a pair for her too. Apparently, they're very realistic looking — my cat repeatedly fishes them out of the closet, brings them to me, and meows until I pay attention. The mittens are well-made and have withstood the abuse." —LRB

    18. A handheld electric milk frother they can use to turn their morning brew in a foamtastic and fluffy coffee shop–level experience.

    It's battery operated — just run it in some soapy water for an easy cleaning!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in two colors).

    Promising review: "Love this little thing! I have every thing you can think of at home for making coffee and espresso... Well I love the Starbucks pumpkin cream cold brew with foam. I set out to make my own. Well I can now make cold foam thanks to this little tool. Love it!" —Gav's mama

    19. A faux oil painting portrait of Bill Murray that'll give any lucky giftee thrills, chills, and (of course) Bills when unwrapped.


    Get it from Amazon for $17.98.

    20. A pair of Beats Solo 3 wireless headphones so they can work out, get a snack, or ignore text messages while listening to their favorite playlist — all without being ~tied down~.


    I have these and use them just about every day at work — I like that they don't overheat my ears, and sometimes I forget I'm in an open floor plan and just jam out with some ridiculous head-bobbing dancing.

    Get them from Amazon for $199.95 (available in nine colors).

    Promising review: "These headphones are amazing! The sound is great and clear, they get loud, noise canceling when music is playing, basically noise canceling even when music isn’t playing. They are comfortable except after a few hours of constant use they start to hurt your ears but that is like any over ear headphones. The battery life also lasts soooo long, they are great headphones, I definitely recommend!" —Dixie Freeman

    These also won best $$$ wireless headphones on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    21. A Great British Bake Off-inspired apron for anyone who ~loaves~ the idea of getting a handshake from Paul Hollywood and his blue eyes. Then they'll know they've finally ~proofed~ (get it?) their worth.


    "It's uhhhhnderbaaaeeaaaaked." —my brain at all times

    Get it from pencraftE on Etsy for $24 (available in three colors).

    22. A shrimp neck pillow any aspiring Eleanor Shellstrop would love — warning, they might get ~shellfish~ about sharing it!


    You *do* need to get expedited shipping at checkout if you want to give this at Christmas, just FYI.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    Promising review: "This pillow changed my life. Birthday for someone you're in love with? Wanna show your teacher you appreciate them? Does your hairdresser give you solid looks for solid prices and you need a Christmas gift for them? Does ur neck need support late at night when ur playing scary video games in the dark at 2 am when you should be studying for finals? This shrimp neck pillow was the answer to all those questions. Its so comfortable. It's so fashionable. It's so iconic. No one will ever disrespect you with this on your neck. If you have doubts, take my word for it. This pillow is where it's at." —McHoot

    I've bought and gifted this pillow, and it is indeed great.

    23. A pair of Australian sheepskin insoles to transform any pair of shoes (wellies, slippers, boots, sneaks, etc.) into Ugg-like heaven.


    Get a pair from Amazon for $9.99 (available in sizes 4–13).

    Promising review: "Wonderful! Warm, cozy, comfortable — everything I could want. Many of the insoles I have bought in the past had a layer of fleece stuck to a piece of plastic, which felt fine for a little while but soon the fleece wore away and I was walking on the plastic which was very uncomfortable. These are the real deal — a piece of lamb hide with leather on the bottom and fleece on top. The fleece is so thick I can't imagine it will ever wear down to the bottom but if it does, I will be walking on soft leather, which isn't bad. I will be buying again." —Linda Williams

    24. A pair of high-top Allbirds so comfy, they can even wear them without socks — and without sacrificing their style to save their feet.


    Get them from Allbirds for $115 (available in women's sizes 5–10 and men's sizes 8–14; available in nine colors).

    25. A six-pack of Popbar hot chocolate on a stick that'll quote Nene Leakes when each one luxuriously dissolves into their beverage: "I am very rich!"


    Just heat up a mug of milk, pop one of these babies in, and stir until fully melted. Then simply enjoy the easiest, most gourmet hot chocolate ever!

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $19.99. Available in two kinds of variety packs: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and vanilla (two of each) ~or~ milk chocolate, dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, peppermint, and mocha (one of each). Also available in smaller and larger size variety packs.

    Promising review: "Great item. We enjoyed the hot chocolate. I gave them as gifts as well. It is real hot chocolate — not like the instant stuff. I didn't even know there was anything like this. Glad I stumbled upon them. They were a big hit." —Watch bobble

    26. A gift card to Winc, a wine subscription that'll deliver their favorite grape product right to the front door — an ~expertly curated~ selection of everything from sparkling wines to pinot noir... from all across the world.


    Get a gift card in the amount of your choosing at Winc. When choosing your amount, note that subscriptions start at $13/month.

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review in This Wine Subscription Service Will Change Your Life.

    27. A set of laboratory-style shot glasses to truly make drinking a science. Experimenting with different kinds of tequila? Perfect.


    Just started dating someone, not sure what to get, but want to prove you two have ~chemistry~? These are perfect.

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $19.47.

    Promising review: "Such a cute addition to any bar cart — especially for someone with an interest in chemistry! The etching/printing on the glass is clear and quality. I would probably hand wash just to avoid it coming off in the dishwasher but so far so good!" —Cait

    28. An enamel pin for any truly clever girl. It'll make anyone read their denim jacket or backpack with ~rapt(or)~ attention.


    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    Promising review: "I love love love this pin! It’s got a nice, sturdy feel to it and it doesn’t budge because it has two backings. I wear it on my purse." —EM

    29. A (thinner! waterproof!) version of the Kindle Paperwhite with a glare-free screen so you feel like you're reading an *actual* book — without having to have to schlep around a heavy 1,000-page volume (looking at you, A Song of Ice and Fire).


    Personal note: I love the last edition of the Kindle Paperwhite so much. It's SO LIGHT that I keep it in my bag at all times — you never know when you're gonna have a spare 15 minutes for a chapter or two.

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (it's 40% off from $129.99 right now!.

    Learn more about the features of the new 2018 Kindle Paperwhite in our closer look!

    30. And a bath caddy so you can soak up some great lit while soaking in the tub — this one has room for a beverage, snack, candle, and of course your new waterproof Kindle Paperwhite.


    The expandable arms fit most tubs and have rubber on the bottom to keep it from slipping, plus the book holder is protected by a waterproof cloth to keep any errant splashes away. AND the bamboo is coated in a water-resistant lacquer to keep any mold and mildew at bay.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    Promising review: "Love this beautiful bamboo tray! I used it the first night it arrived (fast shipping!). The adjustable angle stand works great for leaning my iPad against. The phone slot, wine glass holder and extra storage space for a towel, mug or candle are great! My bathtub is small, but it expands quite long." —Lisa Gyllenberg

    31. A super-soft knit throw with their Hogwarts House emblem for school pride they never got the chance to show off.

    PB . Teen

    Get them from PB Teen for $34.99 each (originally $69 each).

    32. And a Pop-Up Guide To Hogwarts for a three-dimensional look at the castle that's *almost* as cool as the Marauder's Map.


    Get it from Amazon for $41.48.

    Promising review: "This books is beautiful. The illustrations are detailed and intricate with subtle things you may not notice on the first viewing. The spine is magnetically attached so you can make it lay completely flat to see each page spread. And!!! It comes apart (gently) to make a full map!! Definitely a worthwhile addition to a Harry Potter–related collection" —_fksksxjxjjajs_

    33. BuzzFeed's limited-edition splurge-worthy Birchbox beauty box, which is chock-full of all the things they deserve for a little treat-yourself moment before the decade ends (or right when 2020 begins!)

    Get it from Birchbox for $62 (it's valued at $205!).

    What's inside, you ask?

    *Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Foundation Primer (travel-size), which preps skin (or for or without makeup) to minimize the appearance of pores and overall blur the look of your skin (retails for $15).

    *First Aid Beauty Arnica Relief & Rescue Mask (full size), a mega-moisturizing and healing treatment for your driest winter skin. Plus it's not available *anywhere else* but this box right now!

    *Saturday Skin Pretty Pop Probiotic Power Whipped Cream (full size), a fluffy moisturizer with little beads of hydration that dissolve as you tap it into your skin for your glowiest, bounciest skin yet (retails for $57).

    *Glamsquad The Untamed Texturizing Finishing Spray (travel size), a never-sticky, translucent product to add instant touchable texture and volume to your hair — in just one spritz (retails for $12, or $22 for the full size).

    *Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Liquid Liner, which makes creating super-precise and opaque lines and wings as easy as drawing with a sharpie. Helllooooo easy cat eyes (retails for $35).

    *Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer (full size), a borderline miracle spray that does it all — and then some: de-frizzes, detangles, protects from the heat and sun, and prevents breakage. Whew! (retails for $28).

    *Amika Soulfood Nourishing Mask (travel size), a nourishing treatment to help dry and damaged hair in just one longer-than-usual shower karaoke session (retails for $12).

    *Glamglow Bubblesheet Oxygenating Deep Cleanse Mask, which fizzes up to form tiny microbubbles to deep cleanse and wake up your skin in just a couple minutes (retails for $9).

    *ColourPop Cosmetics Lippie Stix in Love Life, a matte lipstick in a fun, poppy red that'll have you ready for any holiday party...or just an everyday red lip. (retails for $6)

    34. A Nintendo Switch that'll...well... switch between a handheld game and a multi-player console (play with the the Joy-Con controllers attached or dock it into your TV!).


    The Joy-Con can be used separately for two-player action, inserted into the Joy-Con grip like a traditional controller, held in each hand for left and right controls, or attached to either side of the Nintendo Switch!

    Get it from Amazon for $299 (available in two colors).

    Promising review: "The switch is already of my favorite consoles I’ve ever owned. As an adult-I’ve been surprised by how much I play it in handheld mode. It’s nice to be able to sneak in some gaming time here and there at work when there is some downtime. And I actually find myself playing it in handheld mode pretty often at home when I’m watching football on the weekends. I’m glad I waited until this model with the improved battery life came out. Sometimes, I don’t have to put it on the dock to charge for 5 or 6 days, assuming I’m playing 30 minutes here and there. I highly recommend this system." —Chris Dunn

    35. A selection of Wolferman's most-loved flavors of English muffin (original recipe, cinnamon raisin, San Fran–style sourdough, and blueberry) to kick breakfast up a big ole notch. They also go wonderfully with soup.


    Real talk: my family is actually obsessed with these English muffins. They're extra thick and oh-so good — DEEP nooks 'n' crannies for butter meltage. I've eaten and enjoyed all the flavors included in this selection.

    Get the four flavors (four muffins for each) from Wolferman's for $19.99.

    36. A ball launcher that'll be a years-long treat for any four-legged friends who love to R-U-N.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.52 (available in nine models — for different size balls and shorter/greater throwing distance).

    Promising review: "While my dog struggles with the concept of returning the ball to me, she absolutely loves this! We visit a huge dog park frequently, and this lets me throw a ball far enough that she really gets to run full throttle! I could never throw it far enough on my own to keep her interested more than one or two times before getting the launcher. Now, we can spend an hour at the park playing with it. I have one super tired dog when we go home. Tired dog = happy dog = happy dog mom. I also love that I don't have to pick up the slimy ball with my hands anymore, especially after she drops it in a puddle, because the launcher picks it right up. My dog gets so excited when she sees the launcher that she will bounce back and forth in front of me until I throw the ball. I only regret not buying one of these earlier!" —C. Fritzche

    37. A subscription to Book of the Month, because they deserve a new pick every month, selected from an array of shouldn't-be-missed new releases, plus a fun little surprise.

    Each month they can choose from five available titles — plus, they can always get more books or even skip a month if none of the options sound like the right fit!

    Give Book of the Month for $44.99+; available in 3-, 6-, and 12-month subscriptions — and add any extra books on for $9.99 each!

    38. Or if they're more into audiobooks, an Audible gift subscription that'll deliver three titles each month: one audiobook and two ~Audible Originals~ — PLUS 30% off any additional audiobooks they'd like to check out.


    It works for people who are already members too — they get credits for the months you give them!

    Get a one-month subscription from Amazon for $15, three-months for $45, six months for $90, and 12 months for $150.

    If you want to try it for yourself, you can get a one-month free trial!

    39. A compact Shiatsu massager they can use on their neck, back, legs, and more to relax overworked muscles. Plus, it has an optional heat setting for even more pain relief. It's like giving the gift of a portable spa!


    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    Promising review: "Over the years I've bought and returned a few different massagers. The ones that attach to the chair are just too big. The smaller ones hurt or just vibrate. The sharper image ones are junk. So... I took a chance with this one. Wow! This really works. I like that it's smaller so you can actually position it where you want. It turns in one direction for a little while and then it switches and goes the other way. When it turns, it really feels like a massage instead of that vibrating feeling. I really like how compact it is and how it doesn't move too fast. It's just a steady massage that's hands free. I can use it on my calfs, legs, back, shoulders and neck. If this breaks I will definitely buy another one. This is the best massager I ever had." —cbear

    40. An adorable flannel pajama set for anyone who wants to ring in *every night* of the new year with a little bubbly. ::Raises hand::


    Get it from Amazon for $21.49+ (available in sizes XS–2X and four other patterns).

    Promising review: "I love these pj’s. They are comfy, warm, and cute. What more could you want for flannel pj’s? I highly recommend them." —Purple Tabby

    41. A challenging and cool-looking Rubik's cube-style puzzle that'll look even more art-like before it's completed.


    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    Promising review: "This thing is fantastic! i've recently gotten into shape shifting puzzles and this a great place to start from the regular 3x3. This is easily my smoothest turning puzzle. I have done probably 20 solves so far and have had no hangups or issues what so ever. Stickers seem to be good, one is ever so slightly of center but it dosen't look like any will come off any time soon. Also it just looks awesome in both its solved state and scrambled." —john m.

    42. A pair of cozy faux-fur slide slippers perfect for lounging or completing annoying household tasks in the ultimate comfort.


    Get them from Amazon for $15.93 (available in sizes 4.5/5–10/10.5 and five colors).

    Promising review: "So soft and fit right. I call them my heaven slippers!! They were so nice my 8-year-old requested I find him a pair of heaven slippers. Perfect for me😊" —April hamilton

    43. A gorgeous textured travel wallet that'll store their cash, boarding pass, passport, credit cards, and more — all while looking like a chic mini clutch.


    It's made of Rfid-blocking material too.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in 35 colors).

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this wallet. I needed a new travel wallet, and this holds everything I need all in one place, and it still closes nicely and stays flat! Boarding pass, passport, ID and credit cards, money, checked baggage tickets, receipts, etc! Yet it doesn’t bulk up or look like an overstuffed mess. Just amazing. The description says it only holds US money, but I just used the boarding pass flap to hold all my Japanese Yen (¥), which are larger. I didn’t use the zippered pocket for coins as I much prefer a separate coin purse for that sort of thing. I definitely recommend to anyone who travels a lot!" —Anthony Luu

    44. Villainous, a strategy-based game featuring their favorite Disney villains (duh!) so everyone in the family can bring out their inner evil queen.


    Six people (ages 10+ recommended) can play as their favorite villain — Maleficent, Jafar, Ursula, Captain Hook, the Queen of Hearts, and Prince John — each with different abilities and objectives.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.97.

    Promising review: "I love board games, particularly more adventurous and more adult ones, but getting my wife to play them with me is like pulling teeth. This one is very easy to learn but a challenge to master, which makes it accessible for those who are casual board gamers but enjoyable for the more hardcore enthusiast. Each play-through is different depending on what characters each player chooses, the strategy they apply, and the random draw of the cards. Can't wait until they release expansions with new villains." —Phil

    45. A wedge ice cube set that'll perfectly chill any libation WITHOUT watering it down — and it also happens to look really cool.


    The set comes with a double old-fashioned glass and a silicone mold to make the wedge of ice.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    Promising review: "We absolutely LOVE these whiskey wedge glasses. They are simple to use, durable, and are such a hit at dinner parties and cocktail hour. The wedge stays solid for a very long time and melts at the appropriate pace so as to not water down your drink. The bourbon drinkers around here are very pleased with the water melt ratio in this glass and we have since ordered three more to add to our first purchase! Highly recommend!!" —Haley E.

    46. An updated Fijifilm instant camera with six different shooting modes, auto flash, a *SELFIE MODE* and three color filters you can pop over the lens for retro-inspired shots.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $130 (available in two colors) or a bundle with 20 sheets of film, camera strap, and cleaning cloth from Amazon for $139.99 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "Having been an avid Fujifilm/polaroid owner, as well as being a photographer, I was turned onto this model for the many amenities it promised. Different degrees of brightness, no flash, double exposure, self timer! All amazing additions to the handheld Instax line. Not to mention the beautiful shell and handy mirror for selfie taking." —Thebestbroski

    47. A cute and colorful air frier that'll harness the magic of circulating hot air to add a crunch to all their favorite foods with ease. Just a warning, the gift of perfectly crispy fries, wings, and more at home without hauling out a deep frier might bring a tear to their eye.


    It has a three-quart capacity (aka it can handle a one-pound bag of fries), an auto-shut off feature, and a removable basket for easy clean-up.

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "So glad I have this Air Fryer! Was amazed at how simple clean up was even after I used it cooking something with a sticky marinade! Soaked for literally just a couple of minutes and everything just simply wiped away! Instructions on use were easy to follow and loved that the manual included a few good recipes. Fryer is quiet when in use and doesn't take up a lot of space, so if you have a small kitchen this is ideal! I am looking forward to trying out new items in this air fryer!" —Pam McGrath

    48. A trio of Garrett's popcorn (it's Oprah's fave), because eating this at the holidays is a cliché for a REASON. But ditch the kind you usually get and get the *good* stuff this year. We're talking caramel, butter, and cheese popcorn in a just-creepy-enough Nutcracker tin.

    Popcorn Factory

    Get a customizable three-flavor mix from Garrett's for $53.25+ (available in three sizes.

    49. Or a silicone popper so they can make up to 14 cups of popcorn in the microwave for the whole group — and everyone can add whatever toppings (light salt, heavy salt, DIY kettlecorn, chocolate drizzles, etc) they're craving.


    It's *also* collapsible so you can store it easily in a drawer.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in seven colors).

    Promising review: "Okay, so I am a very skeptical shopper. This is especially true when a product has a fair amount of hype behind it. After reading reviews for this popcorn maker, I decided to give it a shot. I did not realize how much I would use this product until I tried it for the first time. My girlfriend and I have made popcorn several times per week since receiving it. We love it so much because we can experiment with different flavorings, oils, butters, and salts to create popcorn that is 100 times better than anything we have ever bought in a store. I loved it so much, that I actually bought more for my popcorn-loving friends and family!" —Amazon Customer
